Now, in what must be a horrendous disappointment to the 21-year-old, the bad news has been confirmed with scans showing an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament that will keep him on the sidelines for the next six months.

On the 25th matchday of the 2014-15 Premier League season, Leicester City lost 2-1 at Arsenal, falling deeper into the Premier League basement with just 17 points.

One year later, Leicester City won its 25th game of the season, beating Manchester City 3-1 on Saturday and moving five points clear atop the league table (53 total points).
